How are Centres funded?The Funding model draws equally from three sources:1. Business funded R&D contracts (i.e. contract research) won competitively2. Collaborative (applied) R&D projects funded jointly by the public andprivate sector, won competitively3. Core public funding for investment in the capabilities, know how, expertiseand skills and long term capital assets of the centre.Supported by a 5 year business plan 15. What does HVM Catapult seek to deliver? Accelerating technology commercialisationo combined skills and equipment helping new and existing businesses give commercial life to great ideas. Cohesiono partnership binds together the 7 consortium centreso potential synergies can be fully exploited Economic driveo manufacturing has a huge impact on the economyo the balance of the economy needs a new stimulus The result will be a thriving UK manufacturing industries built on world- leading technology and invention 16. What are the benefits of working with the Catapult? Lowering risk: investment risk reduced through collaboration with HVM Catapulto drawing on shared investment coupled with government financial support Cutting-edge equipment: access to expensive equipment normally inaccessible to many individual companies.o Open-access national resources Creative collaboration: success through joint projects with leading-edge research partners. Stimulating partnership: large companies and SMEs can come together in partnership to develop new solutions. Collective skill-set: platform for skills development at all levelso an environment where groups of people with differing skills can work together. 17. . . . and Greater Influence Critical mass to influence Government on theneeds and priorities of UK Manufacturinginnovation Critical mass to influence the UK Research agenda. . . and for SMEs Network of open access centres of expertise Help to develop and commercialise your innovations, perhaps though larger partners Training and up-skilling capability 18.
